Welcome!!!!

I had ankle surgery last year so, I can't a lot of high impact moves either. However, I found that the dancing games don't penalize me a lot for modifying moves to a low impact version when I need to. The Biggest Loser Ultimate Challenge game allows you to give the coach verbal cues that the exercise is too much for you and will switch to a different exercise that will work the same muscle group but in a different way. I've been really impressed by the level of modification it has.

Happy New Year!!!

Hi my name is Vicky and Im a 38 yr old Mother of 2. We got an Xbox and Kinect for Xmas. Looking for ways to incorporate it in to my workouts. Im limited to what I can do because I have a bad knee so lots of cardio like running are out for me. Walking can even be tough. I can do bike and elliptical but looking for new options.

These are the games I have for Kinect so far...

Kinect Sports (1st one)
Kinect Adventures
Fruit Ninja
The Gunstringer

The only one Ive toyed with a bit is the sports one. Ive done the bowling, boxing, and the table tennis.

Would love to hear advice on how I can use it for workouts and good game recommendations!
